Dr Rosalind Miller
MPharm MSc PhD
15-17 Tavistock Place
After completing a Pharmacy degree at The University of Nottingham I worked as a pharmacist in both the NHS and private sector for a number of years. I later transitioned into public health and health economics, completing a Masters in Public Health at LSHTM and a Graduate Diploma in Economics at Birkbeck, University of London. I completed my PhD, which looked at the performance of chain pharmacies in India, here at the School in 2018.
I teach on PHM103 Introduction to Health Economics and D1-1504 Economic Analysis for Health Policy.
My main research interest lies in better understanding and improving the use of medicines in low- and middle-income countries. I am currently undertaking an ESRC-funded post-doctoral fellowship which builds on my PhD research to address challenges in pharmacy practice, in particular illegal and inappropriate sales of antibiotics over-the-counter. My PhD used a mixed methods approach to understand the effect of chain pharmacies on key public health concerns, such as quality of care and prices of medicines, in India. My previous work has looked at antibiotic use by informal providers in West Bengal; understanding the challenges that recent developments in healthcare markets pose for effective regulation in a range of LMIC settings; and commissioning of healthcare in the UK.
